Wednesday

WCW: Aderonke Enoabasi Adefalujo (Rhonkefella)

Hi Guys! Happy Wednesday, is it me or we are speeding towards the end of the year. I'm happy about that though. Hope we are all doing great? Great!
I'm not sure I remember well the first time I stumbled on Rhonkefella's page, but I know  that once I did, I became hooked. With lots of amazing fashion  wears to feed your eyes with, you can't but imagine the amount of hard work that goes into the work she does as a fashion designer, make-up artist, style blogger and influencer. I knew I had to have a chat with her to find out how she keeps her pages popping and with obviously so much on her plate, she still made out time for this interview! *how sweet* :)
Our Woman Crush is the loveable Ronke Enoabasi Adealujo popuarly known as Rhonkefella. Enjoy:)



Hi Aderonke!


1)      Many people see you as a style icon, do you ever feel under pressure to look stylish, especially when you don’t really feel like dressing too glam?

Ronke: I will rather say I'm blessed with a chameleon kind of beauty, when I'm not all glammed you probably wouldnt know that is Rhonkefella so outside the social media world, if I do not feel like being all dressed up , I don't force it, I just step out as ADERONKE not Rhonkefella!

2)      Your brand is quite popular and respectable on social media; what will be your top three tips for people who hope to grow their brand via social media?

Ronke: know your purpose
Stay original
Be consistent



3)      Please share with us one of your proudest moments in your career?
Ronke: being awarded and getting recognition for what I do makes me proud, when I started it was just all about my passion, never did I set out to be known or whatever, was just doing what I love, so having to be duly recognized and awarded is such an honor, and a thing of pride I must say!

4)      Have you ever had any embarrassing style moments? Please tell us about them?

Ronke::Not yet! Been keeping d CV clean🤣

5)      What’s your favourite fashion piece?

Ronke: glasses ( eye wear)


6)       A Style NO NO for you has to be what?

Ronke: whatever doesn't fit me, I won't wear it

7)       What’s that one thing you wish to do but haven’t yet done?

Ronke: singing and acting

8)      Tell us something about you/your work that many people don’t know about.

Ronke: my work is stressful, sometimes mentally and physically, sometimes depression sets in! Specially when you always wanna stay ahead of your game! I'm a creative so it first takes a lot of mind work before the putting pieces together


9)       If you were to choose one, what's something you’d like to change in the fashion industry ?
Ronke: Honestly nothing I can think of at this moment of this interview!


10)    What’s on your mind this Wednesday
Ronke: Money o! Never been this motivated to make more money, more great moves! Working on new collections at the moment it's about to be LIT

 Stay Inspired,

Monday

MCM: DAMILARE OF LEGENDARY SHOT

Holla fam, Hope your Monday is going well? There's so much beauty to behold in this world, hence why I never get tired of interviewing  photographers. I get excited at the thought of picking their brains and knowing what goes on in their minds and in their eyes (or in the eyes of their mind lol)
Our Man Crush this monday is Damilare of Legendary Shot. Enjoy :)









Hi Damilare!

1) You take very creative shots, how do you choose stories to create?
Damilare: My social environment, things I see, movies , pictures etc mostly influence the kind of stories I get to create because those are my major source of inspiration. 

2) What do you love most about photography?
Damilare: The flexibility and also being able to create in my own way. I can't just imagine a better way of communicating and inspiring people than this.



3) What's been the most memorable photo shoot you've ever had?
Damilare: I would say this was a photoshoot I had back then in University (Landmark University) with a friend of mine , her name is Nashida and she's mixed. So I got this inspiration to just create a fictional portrait of her in terms making her look more like a Queen/goddess.
And with the help of some of my friends we got creative and was able to use a flowery bed-sheet to create a robe on our subject and also cotton poles as her staff and then we made use of flowers to create a very nice kind of halo on her head . My team pulled it through sincerely and I'm still very much grateful till date.



4) Tell us the top 3 people you'll love to take pictures of?
Damilare: Genevieve: I feel she's going to be a very interesting subject for me to make dreamy portraits with.
    Wizkid: We all know he's on top of his game right now but that's not a reason for me to want to create something with him.
I just really want to create portraits with him that would be able to interpret his story as an individual and not just a celebrity .
    Morgan Freeman: I just have that belief that this very talented man would be a great subject for me to make special portraits with. His movies are top notch and a must watch always.



5) How do you keep yourself constantly inspired?

Damilare: By constantly wanting more , I'm at this point where I feel like I need to do more , the hunger is always there to do more so I think that keeps the fire burning.

6) What's on your mind this Monday?
Damilare: Relaxation basically, hook up with friends , eat, talk and just have a good time .
Stay inspired!
